Truly incredible views of Lake Trasimino! And the restaurant is a jewel of fresh ingredients and home cooking. Not to be missed! I love the Pici with Chingjali sauce, but it's all fabulous!

Visited this hilltop trattoria- breathtaking view - service was relaxed- didn't order properly but enjoyed our spare meal. We'd love to return for a proper meal

Went to this restaurant mainly for the wonderful panoramic views of Lake Trasimeno. The views are indeed great. The food was decent.

The view of the valley and Trasimeno lake from the terrace is worth the trip. We were not lucky with the service: slow despite there were only a handful of customers and rude when we pointed out that 45 minutes wait for an appetizer is excessive and that the pasta ("bici") was not cooked enough - not just "al dente"...

Sit on the balcony as you will enjoy great views overlooking Lake Tresimino. Traditional Italian food with plenty of choice. Friendly staff.

Unusual place, as it has a little store for essentials, a bar and a restaurant with superb views. We only ate here once in the evening, but had coffees and pastries which were great. The staff were very friendly and efficient.

We stayed at a great villa nearby - Villa Forconi, in September 2015 and stopped at Lo Scoiattolo several times, for morning coffee and a delicious pastry, for several meals and once just for a cocktail in the evening. We liked it mainly for its great views over Lake Trasimeno but found the family who run it very friendly. The... More

the setting is enough to tempt anyone, with views across the lake and to the mountains, equally stunning by day or night. On previous visits we have enjoyed the pasta dishes because of their tastiness and attention to local detail. Recently we had secondi of vitello which were on the tough side and not as tasty as we would have... More

A local roadhouse in the middle of the road between Tuoro and Mercatale, it is a hangout for all the locals so the ambiance is not much but the local flavor is wonderful. Excellent gnocchi but the rest of the pastas are only so-so. The pizza is excellent but for some crazy reason, they only make it on Thursdays.
